    Beautiful bow! Are you going to shelve your HTR?

    Warren, do you think the Wakes increased stability as compared to your HTR is because of its longer ATA, shorter brace height, higher weight, i.e. the bows overall dimensions, or the B-Stinger stabiliser combo? I was thinking of going to a side stab on my rig using a five inch B-Stinger rear stab in combo with the 8" I have on the front and an Elite quick detachable mount. It looks like you've got a Hunter Maxx on the rear. How did you decide on the weights, and is the Wakes riser already drilled for a back weight like the HTR is? I initially was looking at the Monster Safari, but after shooting the HTR I went with it because it just felt reel nice and was easier to control.

    That wake is nice. But what bugs me is the weight and the price. Most guys i know are getting pse because the wake is around 1300$. THAT cost more than the hoyt carbon bows. But regardless im Mathews all the way

    ^^^ Xoutdoors, the Wake is an intriguing bow even though it lists at $1699 MSRP. It's high fps speed, longer ATA, and strong looking riser are pretty cool. Was this bow aimed at certain kind of archery aficionado or niche in the market? If my local pro shop had of had one in stock who knows.

    The Wake holds better than the HTR and that's saying a lot because I thought the HTR was the best holding bow short of a target bow I ever shot. I believe it's the long riser that gives it, it's incredibal stability the weight helps but I think the long riser is the key. There is no rear stab mount on it, I have no idea way?? As for the stab's I got to play with them more it feel's good now but I got to play with the weight's more to find the sweet spot. I was going to get a Safari to but until they put some sort of draw stops on it, it's no deal for Me.:D
